linked, do you think, to the global food crisis? >>now when you look at egypt and tunisia and some of the other countries; the first thing you see isdictators that overstayed their welcome because they've been there for decades, that's the first thing to say. but it's also true that high food prices this year for food importing countries like egypt, the largest single wheat importer in the world, egypt, was certainly part of the tinder which led to a lot of this unrest. and though egypt through its social policies kept some bread prices down,other pasta prices and wheat based products definitely saw rising prices, rising tension, rising social insecurity and social instability. this is a phenomenon that is going to roil the world unless we get ahead of it. and for those who believe that military approaches...whether in libya, or afghanistan, or iraq, or not so secret 'secret' war in yemen, somehow can solve this problem; they are making a serious mistake. all the war in the world is only going to exacerbate this hunger crisis. of course what we need is farmers that in a stable envi

nor forward-leaning. just as the people of egypt, tunisia, libya, syria, and elsewhere see a chance for a better life of genuine freedom, the leaders of radical islam see a chance to rise political turmoil into power. the united states has a vital stake in the future of this region. we have been presented with a challenge as great as any we face in recent decades. and we must get it right. the question is -- are we up to the challenge? my answer is of course we are. if we're clear about our interests and guided by our principles, we can help steer events in the right direction. our nation has done this in the past. at the end of world war ii, in the last decade of the cold war, in the most recent war on terror and we can do it again. but president obama has failed to formulate and carry out an effective and coherent strategy in response to these events. he has been timid, slow, and too often without a clear understanding of our interests. our clear commitment to our principles and parts of the republican party now seem to be trying to outbid the democrats in appealing to isolationis
